BurdaStyle Skirt and Jacket

You can tell that I grew up in the 90s with this Clueless inspired outfit including a high-waisted skirt with a flounce hem and short cropped jacket. I made this right before we all locked down from Covid so I haven’t had a chance to wear it anywhere yet.

What did you like about this pattern?

I love the shape and style of the skirt, I think I’ll now make one in denim so I can wear it casually. It’s also really quick and easy to make!

To make the outfit complete, I’ve created a cropped jacket from the same wool fabric. This one was quite easy to make, however there was a strange issue with the pattern and lining. I cut them both out and one was much larger (width wise) than the other. So it’s definitely worth doing a muslin so you don’t figure that out after you’ve cut your nice fabric.

It fits really comfortably and doesn’t need any buttons. The shorter sleeves are also kind of perfect for living in Queensland because it’s mostly hot all year round. The only time I really need to wear jackets is when my work has the air conditioning is up too high.

The best part about these outfits is you don’t have to even wear them together. They are great little pieces to mix and match with your other clothing.
